Crunchy Puto Bumbong Balls

How to turn your regular puto bumbong meal ala Chef Laudico's style? Stop and taste the ultimate puto bumbong treat at Guevarra's resto in Addition Hills, Juan!

Every year, a lot of puto bumbong vendors are lining up in front of churches and circling around plazas especially when Christmas is drawing near. Prices are very competitive as stalls are standing side by side. Alongside with bibingka, it is considered as one of the most awaited treats during this time of the year and has never failed to entice people of different accounts.
Its sweet, smokey yet coconutty taste is surely a go-get for a family, couple or solo church date. That is why, Chef Jac Laudico came up with an idea of turning the usual puto bumbong into a modernized look but maitains the traditional taste and aroma.


  • 1 cup Jordan Farms Tapol de Oro (for a better mold and texture)
  • 2 cups water -2 tbsp butter
  • 2 eggs beaten -½ cup toasted desiccated coconut
  • 1 tbsp rice flour -½ cup sugar


  • Soak Jordan Farm's violet rice in water for 2 to 4 hours.
  • Grind in the blender until smooth. Strain this mixture using a cheesecloth. Press out excess liquid until it has the consistency of molding clay.
  • Shape into balls the size of golf balls or smaller. -In a pot heat water until it simmers. Drop the rice balls one at a time and wait until it floats to the surface.
  • Scoop out the cooked rice balls and let it cool for a while.
  • Heat oil in a pan deep enough to deep fry the balls. -Dip the rice balls in egg and roll in a mixture of desiccated coconut and flour.
  • Fry until it turns slightly golden brown.
  • Optional: You may add sesame seeds in the sugar.

Brushed with butter and rolled in sugar, the authentic taste of putobumbong drizzled with caramel or coconut syrup of your choice with a twist of crispness with every bite is a total treat not only for those who are putobumbong hoppers but also for those who haven't tried it yet.
